Edward Sheen or Sheehan? born 17 Apr 1806 Kinsale, Cork

Edward was my 2 x gt grandfather and I think that maybe his surname was shortened or Anglicised to be Sheen? He was a Roman Catholic and migrated to London, England with siblings, Daniel b 1811 and possibly Michael, Catharina and Jacob or Jacobi.

Edward married  Elizabeth Powers who was C of E 23 Aug 1825 at Lewisham and they had 11 children born in and around that area of London. When Edward passed away, he was buried in the RC section 25/3/1874 of Brockley cemetery, Elizabeth passed away later and was buried  24/2/1891 in Greenwich cemetery.

Their earlier 4 children were baptised at Our LadyeStar of the Sea in Greenwich with godparents: Gulielmus Murphy and Elizabeth for Catherina Boyle, who was absent; Michael Burn and Catharina Sheen;  Daniel Sheen and Maria Magennis; Joannes Courtney and Maria Anna Courtney. So it seems that some of Edward's siblings were godparents.

Are there any baptism records for Edward and his siblings in Kinsale or nearby parishes?
